Atheism in the Tao of leadership

Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching adapted for a new age
by John Heider (Humanics USA 1985)
1. ...
Tao means how: how things happen, how things work.
Tao is the single principle underlying all creation.
Tao is God.
Tao cannot be defined, because it applies to everything.

72. ...
Be willing to speak of traditional religion,
no matter how offended some group members may be.
Overcome the bias against the word God.
The great force of our spiritual roots lies in a tradition, like it or not.
The wise leader models spiritual behavior
and lives in harmony with spiritual values.
There is a way of knowing, higher than reason;
there is a self, greater than egocentricity.
